No Mundo Maravilhoso do Futebol: Wonderful World of Football
- An integral feature of Germain’s earlier projects was the inclusion of imagery from a variety of sources, including press archives, snapshots, postcards etc. ‘No Mundo…’ moves from ‘collecting images’ to actually ‘generating’ them – asking people to join in as producers
- This is the precursor to the ongoing ‘No Olho da Rua’ project and the first project made in partnership with Brazilian artist Patricia Azevedo and graphic designer Murilo Godoy. Between 1995 and 1998 photography, painting and writing workshops took place. In 1998 images were sold to magazines and newspapers (e.g Suddeutsche Zeitung, L’Express, The Independent) to finance publication of a book. Revenue from book and print sales enabled the construction of Cascalho Library which opened in 2002.
